My organization planned to migrate from legacy systems for better scalability, faster development, better compliance, and robust security. Initially, we had issues with networking during set up. It's a perfect cloud interface match for existing PeopleSoft systems. The pricing model is very cost efficient and easy to understand. It took some time to get trained, but once on board, it was a smooth ride.
  • Easy integration with existing PeopleSoft systems.
  • The volume of data that can be created and attached to a new or existing instance.
  • Extremely cost effective to build a dedicated platform with a lot of memory and computing power.
  • Improved support from Oracle to resolve any issues with the configuration for enterprise-level customers.
  • Some of the cloud solutions are bare-bones and not as efficient when compared to what AWS offers.
  • Existing components are insufficient to implement all solutions successfully.
Compared to AWS Oracle is slightly more cost-effective, especially when the implementation doesn't require a wide range of services. The out of the box functionality is minimal compared to AWS or Azure. The technology is advanced especially when it comes to hosting the database. Customer support is not up to the mark compared to other vendors.

Currently, we are using the OCI for our PeopleSoft Upgrade Manager (PUM) and our PeopleSoft demo databases. We are evaluating the network set up and firewall rules we can apply to the environment. We are planning on putting all our non-prod environments into OCI. PeopleSoft is an enterprise application so for testing, it will be used across the organization as well as for DR/BC in the future. For our business, we are hoping it will be cost neutral and provide easy provisioning for our environments as well as scalability for our non-prod environments.

  • Provisioning for environments
  • Scalability for our environments
  • Data backup
  • Understanding what services will incur additional charges when you set up the environment not after the charges start to be incurred.
  • Better PeopleSoft support for lift and shift. We are having a consultant help us with the move.
We don't feel confident enough in OCI to put our production environment in there yet. It may be well suited however we need to do our due diligence. Also as a government agency we need to ensure that our data is never located outside of the US at any time. We do feel it will be well suited for our PUM, Demo, Dev, Test and staging environments in the cloud. Our strategy is to get our staff working on more high value tasks and offload the mundane things on the OCI environment. We may even outsource our server patching. The additional items that come in the cloud purchase make it particularly appealing. These items include data masking, goldengate and the backup and recovery services.

[It's] Used internally to provide access to Oracle applications for all our consultants for development, design, training, demo, and pre-sales work.
  • The only supported platform supported by PeopleSoft Cloud Manager
  • Consistent and predictable performance
  • Underlying technology design is built for resilience and performance.
  • Visual network designer would assistant in ensuring configuration matches intended design.
  • Automatic and seemless migration of VMs from OCI Classic to OCI would show that Oracle is taking cloud infrastructure service seriously.
  • Better, faster support. Traditional methods of filing SRs date back to the 1980s. Online realitime chat with support that know what they're doing is critical.
  • One click template image load from Oracle Cloud Marketplace is basic omission. It's available for oci-c but not oci.
Well suited to running Oracle database workloads. Native Microsoft SQL Server support would allow it to seriously compete in the IaaS market.

Usually, these are internal applications for 5-20 users on an Oracle stack, but not only, we also have some WordPress/Drupal instances running on Oracle IaaS.
  • a la lot of distinct services that instantiate Oracle products in the cloud
  • a good interface that offers many features
  • reliable SLA and good global content network delivery
  • a good prices and possibility to migrate licenses in cloud
  • still buggy on some screens
  • a little bit behind with versions of software, but they usually make upgrades once in a trimester
  • can take time to learn the documentation, but it has plenty

- for developing environments it is accessible from anywhere

- for demo environments, it is easy to ramp up and to decommission

We are using Oracle Cloud in development environments, production environment for internal applications and demonstrative and proof of concept environments. Mostly I like its actionable insight reports and customizable dashboards.
  • It is easier to operate a workload without having to buy, manage and support the underlying infrastructure.
  • It is reliable, fast, quick to access and easy to customize.
  • Billing can become a problem due to the fact that it is extremely granular and is broken out to reflect the precise usage of services.
Well suited for production environment and accounts. Less appropriate for financial reporting requirements of certain geographies.

We are using Oracle Cloud IaaS across the whole organization to deliver new products for clients quickly.
It really helps avoid the need to procure additional hardware in order to initiate projects.
  • Rapid development
  • Flexible pricing
  • Agile
  • Ease of use
  • Centralized deployment
Any time that a project or prototype needs to gather some momentum then Oracle IaaS is a no brainier as it allows you to develop something real in a matter of weeks rather than months

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Review: "Oracle IAAS - Future of server administration"

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

IaaS (Infrastructure As a Service) is being used to upgrade from our current ERP system to the next one which is entirely cloud based. Our servers(web, application, database, monitoring servers etc. )will be maintained on Oracle's cloud infrastructure. Whether this will be a pubilic or private cloud will depend on type of environment, stake holder's involved and facilities offered for both these clouds.
  • Reduction in cost as no scalability is required from an IT infrastructure side.
  • Pre-configured, engineered and simple in nature. This helps in reducing complexity on the IT side.
  • Less number of workers needed. Helps in effectively reducing man power and using comp.
  • IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service) is not a customizable solution. It's a pre-configured system which sometimes fits in customer expectation but largely differs in diversity.
  • More improvements are being worked on by Oracle to improve cloud computing, Oracle systems do not share computing resources and need to be scaled in those areas.
  • Third, Oracle private clouds are not delivered “as-a-service”. This solution is a rental which can be modified, but is nonetheless bound by hardware and software parameters, for a specified rental period.
Oracle's IAAS might work well for small organizations with less cloud computing and scalability requirements. This will result in less manual labor and considerable reduction in IT costs.
